How to install Hamachi VPN on Ubuntu?

2014-02-10 Linux

If you want to install Hamachi, probably you know what it is. That’s why I will skip the description about this pretty nice VPN software. Let’s install Hamachi under Ubuntu Linux (works on *ubuntu as well).

Go to Hamachi’s web page and scroll down to Linux section. Download DEB file. I’ve chosen 64-bit version.

Now open terminal and install this package with all dependencies if they are required:

sudo dpkg -i logmein-hamachi_2.1.0.119-1_amd64.deb

Now it’s time to install Haguichi – GUI software that will help you manage with Hamachi, which for Linux works only in terminal.

Add new repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/haguichi

Update everything:

sudo apt-get update

Install Haguichi:

sudo apt-get install haguichi

Haguichi should appear under your “Internet” section menu. Open it. Now you have two paths to go – create a new VPN or join an existing one.
